  1. Confirming the quorum

 

At least five EC members have to be present for the meeting to be valid.

 

  1. Approving the agenda : approved

 

  1. Personal Update

 

  1. Office Update

 

Secretary General online from tomorrow and focusing on work after the Office holidays. She met the new accountant with whom she setted up a date of meeting, and he gave her the first bills to work with, after re-organising a bit. Maggie also collected the WG applications, and distributed the overall file to the EC, for collectie review, and for all of the EC members to connect with their respective Working Groups. Maggie solved some GA reimbursements already and is working on it.

 

Shenna Sanchez will come back to the office starting from Tuesday 19/08. Edu Loren Garcia, the new intern, will start from September ( arrangements to see during the retreat, along with the tasks and expectations).

 

  1. Retreat

 

  • Agenda

 

→ Logistics: (What do the EC need to bring? Who goes when? Did something change?)

 

Maggie: Everything is in the folder, Maggie will send an email stating the main points of the agenda/transports/accommodation with the instructions tomorrow morning after confirming she will get a car.

 

→ Agenda (What do the EC want to be discussed?, Is it in the right order? Is something missing?) (Link to agenda: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Kx9zuQwO_Ydj0GpfftKNN0PUT1fs7x2AVAFrVcmFQbc/edit?usp=drive_web )

 

Still some doubts and possibilities for change on the Friday’s program, as, because of short schedule notice, Maggie couldn’t find an appropriate trainer. The proposal is to extend the teambuilding period, as it is proposed in the agenda.

 

* On first working day: Objectives/Motivation for FYEG work/ Different Working styles

 

* For Saturday : Micha will work on a more detailed agenda.

 

Sunday’s whole day should be used as much as possible. EC participants should think over what they want to be discussed, the decisions they will have to take, and write them down on the retreat agenda.

 

  1. WGM

 

→ The discussion over Parliamentary visits will take place during the retreat.
